Yes. I haven't gotten even half of it installed yet. I opened up the program to register it and was like "Wow!" Everything looks so different.

Fully agree. You make some real nice music, Samuel. I'm looking forward to upgrading in the near future.

Congrats. I won't be able to upgrade until six months from now because I am a Mac user, but I will get it when it comes out. I won't be expecting to get all of the features that Windows users get because PG music does not care about Mac users. Just post in the forum about Real Band for Mac, the iOS app for iPad ( Isn't the iPad an APPLE product?). I don't get PG Music's logic. If someone from the company could give a fully detailed explanation as to why the center BIAB Real Band, Power Tracks etc around Windows users and leave the Mac users with the basics, that would be great. Seriously, I talked to one of the tech support people about BIAB and she told me that they purposely postpone the Mac edition with no explanation as to why. All you get with BIAB for Mac is BIAB, no Real Band not Power Tracks, just BIAB!

Awwww....did someone get up in a grumpy mood? sleep

Grab a used windows laptop for $100-200 and enjoy. I mean it will more than likley be more powerful than the newest mac pad (or whatever it is called) AND you will be able to upgrade it yourself for pennies! laugh cool

I live in a Mac Family. Just had to get my 12 year old daughter a power mac notebook for school. My gosh. $1300 US. A notebook PC would be about $2-400 US here in Hong Kong. I can't get on with MACs, but I do feel the MAC users get a raw deal.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
